Rethink that drink
Ok so you might not want to do dry January but after all the drinking Christmas involves this month is a good time to cut back and rethink that drink. Some easy ways to help you avoid giving in are pre planning activites with friends and family that doesn’t involve drinking. Enjoy a sparkling water whilst at a social event or be a designated driver. Plan and book exercise classes Saturday or Sunday mornings.
Cook at home
We all love a delicious meal out but this month try to cook more at home. Home cooked meals are the healthiest way you can feed your body as you know what ingredients you are eating. Cooking with a partner or friend can also be a fun so if you are close to ordering take away call a friend to come over and make a night of it. Make sure you cook a big batch so you can also enjoy your flavoursome meals throughout the week . Winner winner.
Make snacks to bring on the go
There is nothing worse then when you are on the go and feeling peckish. When this happens we all end up buying something naughty most of the time so instead pre prepare healthy snacks at home that you can keep at your desk or in a bag. Easy snacks to make include granola bars ( great as they can be in a big batch), carrots and hummus or pita bread, banana bread the list goes on.
Up your H20
We should be drinking between 2-3litres of water a day but it can be hard to keep track of our intake. Drinking water is the best thing we can do to keep our bodies healthy and functioning properly. Upping our H2O intake also flushes out excess sodium which can help you de-bloat. If you love your carbs then drinking more water can effectively help you feel lighter and more energetic.
Have a good breakfast
Its true what they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day so lets make it a good one. Its so easy to cook up a healthy breakfast and mix it up each day to keep things interesting. Granola and yoghurt is always a favourite and is packed with all the good stuff to help you start your day off right. Smoothies are also a great breakfast to include in your diet as you can switch up the ingredients each time. If you prefer a more carb based meal try wholegrain toast with avocado.
